My 68 Camaro came w/ manual 4 wheel drums. I am working on converting to front power disks. Unfortunately, because of this, I have no way to reference how the disk set-up should be done? My manual has 1 page on disk brakes. Damn Frustrating!

My guess on installing proportioning valve (stock valve) is this :

The bracket that holds the prop. valve should be mounted on the driver's side bolt to the master cyl. (with the little rubber button facing the firewall). Then, it should simply go inline to the rear brake line.

Is there an input or an output to this valve?

Am I right in assuming that the rubber button on the prop valve does not go against anything?

Any detailed hints would be a HUGE help. I am almost done w/ this project.

THANKS a ton for the help guys!

Steve


Ps- just to be sure I am calling this part by the right name, my stock drum brakes came with the square box the divides the front and rear lines. The part I am asking about (prop. valve) goes between this and the rear brake line.

You have the valve mounted corectly.
The prop. valve goes in the FRONT brake line as follows:
From the front port of the master cylinder to the front port of the valve.
From the side port of the valve to the left front port of the switch block.
The front port of the switch block goes to the left front wheel.
The right front port of the switch block goes to the right front wheel.
The rear port of the master cylinder goes to the rear port of the switch block.
The left rear port of the switch block goes to the rear wheels.
